About Gregory

Learn Gregory’s areas of practice.

I love helping people! For me, it is a great honor to serve as a trusted advisor to my clients. Through years of listening and learning, I’ve come to appreciate the fact that when people seek an attorney to help them, they want someone who will listen, understand their problem and give them sensible, practical advice, based on a thorough understanding of the law. I have found that listening and understanding is foundational to delivering the right solution.

I gave up wearing ties years ago. Mostly because I really don’t like wearing them. But also, because when a client sits down in my office, I want her thinking about her problem and how we can work together to solve it. I don’t want a stuffy atmosphere that stifles good communication. Most of the people I work with have needs that fall into one or more of three categories: real estate, estate planning and probate and business law.


Real Estate

Whether working with a home-buyer unfamiliar with the closing process, advising a bank on a multi-million dollar loan project, or helping a small business owner successfully negotiate a lease, as long as it has to do with real estate, I’m in! Living in the Texas Hill Country, we have had many clients who have retired here and have counted on our firm to help them navigate the purchase of their dream home or ranch. What they have told us they appreciate the most is our friendly attitude, attention to detail, regular and timely communication, and sound advice.

 

Estate Planning and Probate

Planning one’s “estate” conjures up for most people the idea of something very formal, somber and complicated. The bottom line is that we should all anticipate the fact that we may, at some time, need someone else to come in and help us manage our affairs. We WILL eventually need someone to manage the distribution of our assets, and other issues that arise at death. While the final documentation to address these issues can be technical, the process can be rewarding, if not enjoyable, if you have the right lawyer. Our clients appreciate the fact that we will take the time to listen to their particular needs and work with them to implement the right strategy to meet those needs. My goal at the end of any estate planning project is to leave with a client having confidently crossed off his list “get estate plan done” and has enough of an understanding about what he has that he will know how to spot changes in his circumstances that might affect his plan. For probate clients, we don’t just guide our clients through the process of settling an estate, we try to make it as easy on them as possible. For most people involved with a probate, the task can seem overwhelming; especially in light of the grief that accompanies the loss of loved one. We do everything we can to take care of them and complete the process as efficiently and stress-free as possible.

 

Business Law

I have ongoing professional relationships with hundreds of the Hill Country’s finest business men and women. I take great pride in getting that phone call from a long time client when they say, “Hey, I want to run something by you.” Business is competitive and we work with our clients to make sure they have the tools in place to successfully manage employment relationships, investors, vendors, landlords and owners-to-be. We work hard to earn the trust that gets us the phone calls I described. When opportunities or problems arise, we work diligently to bring creative solutions to the table. Our clients have come to learn that good advice up front can save a whole lot of problems on the back end.

 

Along the way I’ve picked up a couple of degrees (Bachelor’s at Baylor - ’91; and law degree at Texas Tech - ’94); two board certifications (Commercial Real Estate Law and Residential Real Estate Law), a beautiful wife and five sweet daughters. Other than one year spent with the District Attorney’s office in Trinity County, Texas (working with the late Joe Price – the “prosecutor’s prosecutor”), I have spent all of my career in the Hill Country. I love what I do, and I would appreciate the opportunity to meet you and hear how I can help YOU!

Absolute professional, yet 100% accessible
Greg is easy to talk to and clearly explains things that can be complicated. He has a gift of putting people's minds at ease and, "just taking care of it."

Greg and his staff helped us through the very complicated sale of a property including land, buildings, vineyards, a winery and its assets. His advice and counsel were always very helpful and made a complicated closing happen much faster than anticipated.

Great real estate attorney
Greg has helped our family with a number of transactions regarding rural real property issues in the Kerrville area - fee interests, loans/liens, easements, oil and gas issues, etc. He's consistently done an excellent job at a reasonable price.

Thank you Greg
This firm, and more specifically Greg not only did everything he said he would, he really helped us think through some items that we would have never thought of. We will certainly use them again. Excellent job and thank you for taking the time to really think through this stuff. It didn't matter what I threw at them, they delivered.

My best-ever legal experience!
Greg and his staff handled a probate for me, an out of state client. He was VERY responsive, professional yet easy to communicate with, and protected me from future complications I wouldn't have considered. He also offered to contact a family member with a request that was awkward for me, and reassured me it wasn't an uncommon ask. I've used attorneys for other probates, estate planning, real estate transactions, etc. - none compared to this experience with Greg Richards! He is now my go-to attorney. Give him a call, you won't be disappointed.

An attorney you can trust!
Greg has helped our company in preparing solid fair contracts to dispute resolution. He and his staff have been prompt to respond to our questions and delivers beyond our expectations. It is hard to find an attorney that is diligent, thorough, prompt, and approachable; however, Greg is all of this. He's not only a great attorney, he is a great guy!

Highly Recommend - Very Helpful
I was originally introduced to Greg by a realtor friend. After working with him on that original real estate deal, and having a very good experience, I have used Greg's services numerous times. Greg has helped us with additional real estate transactions, forming LLC's, and lease agreements. I highly recommend Greg.

Excellent Attorney
My company had worked with Greg, and his staff, for a number of years on corporate matters ranging from company formation to specific deal structures. Greg has been a valuable asset that has helped us think "outside the box" to achieve our goals. Greg is very diligent in his thought process and always considers the "what if's" in every deal.

Trusted Attorney
For 20+ years Greg has been my attorney for business, personal, and real estate needs. He is very responsive, competent, and professional. In a world full of curve balls, it's nice to have a go-to attorney and friend that you trust for advice, preparation, and execution. Greg is that guy. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend him to others.

Fantastic
Greg has been my lawyer for the last 10 years. He has handled real estate deals, family planning, and contract reviews. I am fortunate that he is on my side. The degree to which he fights for his client is unmatched. I am not only lucky to have him on my team but I am proud to call him a friend. That in its self is more valuable than anything.

Excellent Attorney
Greg is the best attorney I have ever worked with. He has represented me on numerous real estate transactions, new business ventures, and issues regarding my non-profit. Greg has always worked hard for me and my business would not be where it is today without Greg. I feel privileged to be one of Greg's clients and I am thankful for the impact he's had on my business.

Excellence personified.
Greg Richards has been both my personal counsel and attorney for a number of my business ventures over the past ten years. Areas of focus have included commerical real estate transactions including purchase and lease contract evaluation/development, executive compensation contract research and development, negotiation with creditors and representation during wind down. He has provided objective and wise counsel over the many years I have known him. If a particular matter has been out of his wheelhouse, he has helped me locate the right subject matter expert and provided oversight to ensure we maximize benefit. I recommend Greg enthusiastically and without reservation, particularly in the areas of real estate and contracting.

Detailed, thorough, and readily available
Greg handled the sale of our practice and the lease agreement for the new tenant. He was very patient with my many questions on the purchase agreement and he gave excellent input on the revisions I requested. He was available almost immediately every time I called. It has been a year since the sale and he is readily available with questions that have arisen regarding the lease. I highly recommend him.
